Chef Antonio first foray Thai food, there’s a good number of classics — satay with peanut sauce, green papaya salad, red curry chicken, and pad thai all figure on the menu across both lunch and dinner. In the evenings, the menu is extended to feature larger options like lemongrass-marinated steak served with sweet-spicy jim jeaw sauce, and a fried sea bass dish. There are a few fusion options too — some are interesting, like a coconut crème brûlée, although there’s also honey chicken, an option that seems more Americanized-Chinese than Thai. Kwai is also the first restaurant in the city to merge Thai cuisine and brunch — that menu brings options that go comfortably outside the Montreal brunch standards of Benedicts, avocado toast, or bacon-and-egg adjacent options — there’s two noodle stir fries, tom yum fried rice with fried egg, lemongrass steak and eggs, and for the sweet toothed, an almond flour pancake with poached pineapple.

What can be said?..If you can have a good experience in this joint, good for you!
Food was sub-par. Service was TERRIBLE. Waited an hour between courses-no one came by to offer anything-we finally had to get a busboy to search out our order. Nice.
The dishes were small, expensive, and disappointing. The fried chicken was disgraceful. Definitely avoid that at all costs. When the chef was making rounds and asked us,, (as we were trying to get out to avoid being questioned), how our dinner was, we replied very poor-disappointing. When we specifically mentioned the fried chicken, the chefs reply was "oh everybody else likes it."
So much for feedback. Avoid this joint.

We were pleased with finding this relatively newly opened Thai restaurant. The decor, much like next door's Park, was playful, roomy, and upbeat. The cuisine is creative Thai: we shared three dishes and concurred that our favorite was the Pla Rad Prik, and beautifully flavoured dish. The dessert, a cucumber ice cream with meringues on a cake was divine. We'll be back!
